Product: Gucci Guilty Body soufflé cream
Price: Part of a gift set with Gucci Guilty fragrance so no idea
How to Use:
Apply over body and face for a shimmery glow
This product was a part of a gift set containing 50ml Gucci Guilty EDP and 12ml of Body Soufflee cream.
The packaging is a shiny elegant thick black plastic tub with the Gucci Guilty logo inscribed on the lid. The tub is slightly on the heavier side considering the amount of product in it but not so much that it’s a hassle to carry in your handbag.
The perfume is one of my favourite ones and one that I have purchased a few times. I received this set as a gift and at first I had no idea what use would this cream be to me. I would describe the texture as luxurious for lack of a better word. It is extremely light and looks delectable just like a dessert soufflé. The fragrance in the cream is exactly that of the perfume itself but not as intense.
Once applied on the skin it leaves a smooth finish (the sort of finish one feels after applying a good quality face primer) so I imagine it contains silicones? Sadly there are no ingredients listed on the tub to verify this and I managed to throw away the rest of the packaging.
You will notice from swatches that this cream is not shimmery but actually glittery. I have never used this on my face (it is not meant to be used either) to avoid the risk of looking like a disco ball. I have used this on my neck and arms to give a hint of glamour on party nights. I like shimmery creams but stay away from glittery ones so this cream barely gets used.
I love the texture, feel and fragrance but would not buy this due to the glitter content. Those of you who like glitter creams then this one is a perfect choice especially because there is no grittiness given the amount of glitter and glides on smoothly. Also you only need to use a tiny pea size amount for a good glitter payoff.
- Excellent texture and smell
- Elegant Packaging
- Can’t see much use in it other than for disco nights?
Overall Rating: 3.5/5
Are glittery creams your thing? Are there cheaper dupes out there?
